BOND HILL, OH (FOX19) -

Police have arrested a Woodward Career Technical High School student for possessing a gun and are searching for another student who ran away from the school when questioned about possessing a gun.

According to officials, Woodward High School received an anonymous tip that a student had a gun in his backpack. When officials asked the student about having the gun, he ran out of the school. A warrant has been issued for the student.

Cincinnati Police released the name of the second suspect Tuesday.

Police say they are searching for 18-year-old Denzil Payne.

Payne is described as a male black, five feet seven inches tall, weighs 130 pounds and has black hair with brown eyes. His last known address was in the 600 block of Orient Avenue, police said.

According to officials, Payne is believed to carry a gun and is a student of Woodward High School.

“School officials helped us lock the school down. We found, recovered a weapon, a 38 revolver in a school bag. Unfortunately that gun was not connected to the young man they were talking about,” said Captain Maris Herold with Cincinnati Police.

Police found that gun in the cafeteria while searching the premises. Students say the school remained on lockdown for 2 hours during the search.

“It's common for us to be on lockdown. Some people wanted to leave. Some people wanted to stay. Some people just didn't care,” said student Javon Harris.

The 16-year-old that was arrested for the gun in the cafeteria also had marijuana in his backpack according to the arrest report. The juvenile is charged with illegal possession of a deadly weapon and drug trafficking.

Students tell FOX19 NOW there are metal detectors inside Woodward High but they are not always in use. We have not been able to confirm that with Cincinnati Public Schools.

Anyone who has information pertaining to the location of Payne is asked to contact 911 immediately or call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
